Who is This guy?

A mathematician with a Ph.D. in Computer Science specialised in Algorithm Development in Computational Mathematics, focusing on problems appearing in visualization tasks and robotics design, with additional experience in Statistics, Optimization algorithms.

In my Ph.D. program, I was working in (efficiently) plotting singular plane curves preserving properties such as topology . Isolating the singularities of a plane curve is the first step towards computing its topology. For this, numerical methods are efficient but not certified in general. The goal of my work is to develop certified numerical algorithms for isolating the singularities. In order to do so, we restrict our attention to the special case of plane curves that are projections of smooth curves in higher dimensions. This type of curves appears naturally in robotics applications and scientific visualization. In this setting, we show that the singularities can be encoded by a regular square system whose solutions can be isolated with certified numerical methods. Our analysis is conditioned by assumptions that we prove to be generic using Transversality theory . We also provide a semi-algorithm to check their validity. Finally, we present experiments in visualization and robotics, some of which are not reachable by other methods, and discuss the efficiency of our method.

In my master's program at TU Kaiserslautern, Germany I worked in computing a minimal standard basis of an algebraic object called Algebroid curve. I implemented the algorithm and its applications in Singular which is a computer algebra system for polynomial computations.
